Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i have my interview booked. I have booked on a Monday. my medical is booked for the Friday before. Is that okay as it says it takes 5 days for the medical results, or do I need rearrange so I have my medical more than 5 days prior?

 

thanks

Which consulate?  My husband has his medical on a Monday, and interview on the Thursday of that week.  As it had only been three days, the consulate hadn't received the results, so we were in AP for a few days.  In all, it didn't make a difference of more than one week for the visa being issued. 

 

This was at the Auckland consulate, btw.  Other embassies and consulates may have their own rules about it.

I am at the UK embassy 

You'll be better served if you ask your questions concerning the UK embassy in the UK forum.

 

London sub-forum on VJ

There are experts over in the sub-forum for your country located here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/99-united-kingdom/  This is where others from your country who are processing or those who have completed their interview and they can guide you on their experience. A TON of information and help there.

Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine their Embassy. The country that should be used is the country where the interview will take place.

 

So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

 

Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you.

 

Once you finish that then return and you will see a flag in your profile. Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

i have my medical booked for Monday 29th July. I have booked my medical for Friday 26th July in London as I live in the north of England and it makes more sense than travelling down twice.

 

However, I have just seen that it takes 5 days for your medical to be approved as such. Does this mean I need to rearrange my medical to take it to my interview?

 

has anyone done this before so close?

 

thanks

We tend to say in this forum to allow 2 weeks between medical and interview because results have not been available after 5 days for about a year and a half now.

 

 You can attend as planned. Your interview will be approval pending medical results. When the results arrrive and somebody has time to pick up your file again, they will approve and issue the visa. You have to bear in mind that you're not going to have the visa back in a week following your interview. So what you're doing is fine, but don't get antsy thinking your delay will only be a few days. It will be longer.

That’s great thanks. I don’t plan on leaving for the US for another 3 months so I’m in no rush. Thanks for your help

In that case it makes sense. When I did mine it involved two trips to London from Scotland for myself and my daughter, plus accommodation. If you're not pushing the calendar to get everything done asap, it makes much more financial sense to do what you did. As long as you understand the trade-off (delay) it's all really the same at the end of the day.  Good luck!  :)
